I wouldn't bet on it - in Miami, they pulled all the inside posters to the merch truck. If you weren't in the first row at merch table at 6:30 you didn't get one.

Just sayin'
I hear you. Even then, I'd rather try Emek's site, 10C's sale, eBay, or pay someone already in line a nice profit before waiting 4+ hours for a poster and hoping they don't sell out. I feel like these PJ merch lines are out of control and only getting worse and more absurd and while choosing not to go won't change things at least I know I'm not directly contributing to the "problem" I feel is growing.

I'd say there is maybe 1 or 2 posters per tour at most that have decent secondary market value. MSG Donkey Kong, Cracker Jack, Moline....pretty much all of the others can be had pretty affordably. So knowing this, I don't understand why adults would stand in line for hours just to purchase one the day of. And today, it's raining so good luck with that.

Merch Church = Murch

This poster isn't good but tomorrow hopefully will be sweet. PS... It's raining in Philly right now.

Completely forgot there is a Phiilies home game tomorrow night. Not that they draw many but it's going to add to the traffic. :hanging:

They were clearly holding back.

Indeed. So happy to be in the Pit last night. What an encore -- Picture in a Frame, a bit of Angie, Oceans! (crossed that off my list), Chloe, CoT... I could keep going but I'll stop.
I grabbed one of the stickers Mike threw out. Tectonics sticker. I showed my bud. I go "it's just a sticker." He goes "Is that thing signed?" I go "nah." I look at it again-- I go "yeah it is!"
Such an amazing night all around

Photo posted on FB shows 5 sealed poster boxes and at least open one for today. So at least 1000-1200 Emek's I'm guessing. It's still possible all 9 boxes are for tonight and they've already moved some to the truck. Also the shirts are blue tonight.
